Santa Fe Meat Loaf starts out with a combination of ground turkey breast and 7% fat ground turkey. While you could use all breast meat, it may end up being a bit drier if you didn't have the extra fat from the mixed ground turkey. Roasted red bell peppers are sautéd with garlic, onions, and some smokey spices, that when cooled are mixed with the meat. This layered dish has a gooey center from a blended mix of mozzarella, cheddar and monterey jack cheese. To help moisten the meat and for a hot glaze on top, I used a spicy chipotle salsa - but if you want to tame it down, feel free to use a more mild version. Even though there are 6 crumbled bacon slices inside, I felt the flavor from them was lost since it was quite spicy and cheesy. I think the chili powder and cumin brought enough smoky flavor that I would just leave out the bacon next time. Eating for One is having a meatloaf blogging event during the month of March - make sure to check it out!
